We wandered into this store at the corner of North and South street to find an elaborate array of handmade artistic items, frames, cards, leather goods. The owner( I believe) was quite friendly and very helpful. No rush and they gift wrap.It was nice to know they have a local factory to support the Berkshires.

While this store has a wide range of lovely items to explore, from women's clothing to wallets and bags to prints and cards to jewelry, the items that just amazed my husband and me are their (very) oversize framed prints of book spines. They scan the spine, and then produce these amazingly authentic looking prints where you can almost feel... More

At the traffic circle between North & South Sts. Interesting tchotchkes from framed prints, handbages, jewelry, decorative bits you might find in a museum shop. Salesperson very friendly.

They have a fantastic collection of printed material that they print themselves and will do custom work. I've bought prints, posters, greeting cards, trays, wallets, etc. The owner couldn't be more helpful

The name tells the story of the products they sell, but it doesn't describe that it's fun to visit the store. They have a good range of products that look like museum pieces and they are great additions to a family room and, some of the items, to a living room. Actually, almost any room. We visit the place once... More

This shop has cute merchandise reasonably priced. When I arrived, a large party was completing a sale with the clerk (the only one). I waited 10 minutes for the sale to be completed. I then asked to see an item and the clerk told me he would leave me to look at it while he helped a local client. Ten... More

I'm sorry JuneBern that your experience was unpleasant and appreciate letting us know. Please be assured that we value everyone equally who frequents our store. During our anticipated busy periods we have more than one staff on but it sounds as though it's time to have more staff full time. Thank you for taking the time to write this review... More

Gift shop and picture framing shop. Has leather goods, jewelery, unusual items for the home, soaps, candles, cards..etc Located central part of town. Comfortable atmosphere and lots of interesting items for browsing. Something for everyone, wide price range. Can also order online which I am doing because I wished I picked up a couple items for gifts.

Stopped to look while at the Berkshire Museum next door -- and left with several cool finds. Will certainly return and also visit the website. Terrific for interesting gifts.

THE place to go for frames, mirrors. Wonderful selection of leather things, great gifts, enlarged and framed old-book spines (!!) -- many things made locally. You can complete your Christmas list here! Prices reasonable, too. (The picture doesn't do it justice!)
